[Freedombox-discuss] FBX in BXL (the European Parliament)



Hi Marcus,

	Very nice.
	


Thanks!




	Is this EPFSUG connected to Marietje Schaake <http://www.marietjeschaake.eu/> 's digital freedom initiatives,


Well, indirectly :-)

I worked with Schaake on a cross party initiative to ask for comments on a common ACTA resolution in November 2010 (which unfortunately we later lost):


	http://en.act-on-acta.eu/Draft_Resolution_on_ACTA_for_the_November_II_Plenary
	

The result of that RFC-process was tabled independently by both the Greens/EFA and ALDE:


	http://euwiki.org/w/index.php?title=ACTA%2FNovember_diffs&diff=15711&oldid=15710
	

and was subsequently also re-mixed by others.

I'd say that since then, these issues have run in parallel in most political groups in the EP. EDRi has also played a crucial role in making it possible for all parties to address digital rights issues in a coherent way: http://edri.org/

Still a long way to go though. I hope FreedomBox and Edge the Hedgehog will help us get there :-)




	or to the Commission's No-Disconnect Strategy <http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/video/player.cfm?ref=81914> ?
	
	


Commission is unfortunately misbehaving on the Free Software front. But I think that will change soon with the high profile project European Citizens Initiative at risk:

Best regards.
